Program Description:

Service-Learning in Tanzania

June 13 - 30, 2018

This course is designed to expose social work and social science students to international work, specifically human development issues in a remote part of Tanzania (Ukerewe and Musoma). It offers an opportunity to collaborate with other helping professionals from both the U.S. and Tanzania. Through service-learning, students will learn to apply skills gained during their core coursework to real-world issues of the Ukerewe and Musoma people and will learn how to collaborate with their peers, as well as community members, to develop practical solutions to an agreed upon identified challenge.

Academic materials included in this course will highlight issues faced in international development and will tie in application of social work skills. Beyond the applied learning experience, students will have the opportunity to see African animals on a “mini” safari through the Serengeti, will enjoy local cuisine, will get a taste of local culture and Tanzanian hospitality.
